Practicing Zen

Whole-Hearted Focus

Tonight, after dinner, allow yourself to become fully absorbed in the sounds of scraping clean a dinner plate.

At bedtime, notice all the smells and sensations you have while brushing your teeth.

Tomorrow, pay close attention to any memory that may come up as you fill the car with gas. Notice what direction the wind is blowing, and whether your weight is on your left foot or your right foot.

I know you’ve got really important things on your mind, but if you pay super-close attention to the little stuff as it’s happening, the big stuff, when it comes, will unfold in a noticeably more manageable way.

You have my solemn promise on this.
